Quotes & Highlights
Read about the production in the Chicago Sun-Times.
Read an interview with director Sean Graney in Time Out Chicago.
“In his giddy, ever-buoyant, freshly reinvented revival of the show for the Hypocrites, director Sean Graney has stepped up to the helm of this goofy classic and… turned it into the very model of a thoroughly hip and playfully modern piece of musical theater … The result is a zany delight.” -Chicago Sun-Times
“This is not your father’s Gilbert and Sullivan. I kept thinking about how much Gilbert would have liked it. And of all Graney’s many non-traditional creations in this town over the last few years, this is certainly among my favorites.” _ -Chicago Tribune_
Pirates of Penzance is presented in promenade style which means there is no fixed seating, and the audience physically moves around the space with the actors. There is seating in which to rest temporarily, but you will be asked to stand or move during the performance. It’s a lot of fun, but the producers caution against attending if you prefer not to participate in this type of theater experience.
